Yesterday i went to the fabric market with Karin. Not only did we get cute fabric, we also bought some cute ribbon and ehhh some clothes xD We had a delicious salad for lunch and about 4 o'clock we went home. It was such a great day! Today i'm doing some crochet and writing down ideas that are floating in my mind. This has been the case for a while now, but i haven't been able to really make all the ideas! These few weeks have been busy and this week will be also. I have to work 2 more days and then i'm done. In my mind i know i made the decision to quit working as a schoolteacher, but it hasn't reached me completely if you know what i mean. A lot of things are the same as always, so i think it will all sink in when everybody is starting again and i don't have to. Yesterday i bought a can from 'Derriere la porte'. I already had 1.... but i'm really so in love with them that i think i'm gonna collect them! See for yourself
Hi :) I really did some thinkin' inside of my own box (read head) lately and i've decided to quit working as a schoolteacher! I've been working as a teacher for 9 years now and i keep bumpin against the same walls. I've tried a lot from the beginning until now and i've really had times that i went to work crying and feelin' nauseous (this was about 4 years ago). I'm glad that i started working parttime and that we had a switch of management at our school. But even if you work parttime, you really make your hours. I work on monday and tuesday and in reality that means that i have an 10 hour working day, usually without a break.... and the tasks keep piling up!! It's sort of a never ending story :( In the mean time i discovered my creative side again, followed a course and became a childrens yoga teacher :) All things that really make me smile inside, something that i don't have working at school anymore. So it's time for a new step in my life and see where the path takes me.... XO.
This afternoon i'm gonna go to this musical!! I'm sooo excited xD I have watched this movie over and over again when i was younger... i still know there lines and the songs ha ha This musical is in Dutch and i always watched the movie in English so i'm curious about the translation ;) With all the other musicals that i have seen they did a wonderful job, so i'm looking forward to a wonderful afternoon in the theatre! What are you up to this sunday?
Such a cute project to make yourself or to make with your kids on a rainy afternoon :) If your child has problems sleeping you should defenitely make one together! If you're planning on doing this DIY with your kids i would recommend to do so with kids that are about 9 years old. It also depends on the craft level of your child, if you know what i mean ;) Coming thursday i have planned to do a DIY project for smaller kids over at the birdsblog. The childeren can make the dreamcatcher themselves with a few easy steps and save material.
For the DIY of today you will need:
Use your wire to make a round shape and cut
off what you don't need. Wrap the yarn around.
Once your circle is ready wrap your yarn
around like this. Make a knot in the beginnin' and
go round. I used a different color, but if you like
it otherwise.. just do so!
After one round you go further the same way
as you did only now you pull your yarn
through the already made loops.
And so you will make many rounds...
If you run out of yarn just make a knot on the end
and go on. If you like to add beads decide where you
want them and just pull the yarn through (they will stay put)
Make sure you don't leave your yarn just 'hanging'
it has to be tight! Once you have reached the centre
pull your yarn tight and make a knot in the middle.
